91 Points Wine Enthusiast:

"Part of the Bollinger group, this nonvintage cuvée is sophisticated, with ripe fruit, acidity and tangy orange-zest flavors all in balance. A final fresh twist gives a great lift."

90 Points James Suckling:

"Lots of pear and apple flavors with a hint of biscuit. Full body. Plenty of rich fruit and a tangy finish. Lots of acidity here. Drink now."

90 Points Wine Spectator:

"Smoke and forest floor notes lead the way here, with the chalky texture carrying subtle flavors of grilled nut, lemon meringue and dried currant. Balanced, offering smoke details on the fresh finish."

Winemaker notes:

Pale gold in color with a fine mousse, the wine is aromatic on the nose. On the palate, it is well balanced and shows great finesse and complexity.

Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the best grand- and premier crus bring vinosity and delicacy together in a very harmoniously balanced blend.The complement of Pinot Meunier adds a charming touch of fruitiness and liveliness.

Delicious as an aperitif, Brut Majeur is also the perfect wine to serve throughout a meal. It will pair perfectly with sea food, scallops, lobster, crab, fresh or grilled fish, fish terrines, salmonor beef carpaccio, as well as with sushi and Asian cuisine.
